Q. What are the paintings of buildings hanging on the library's walls?

Answer

They depict Ohio’s 88 courthouses, plus the State House, painted by Defiance College Professor Emeritus Hermann Wiebe. 

 

The collection was exhibited in the State House in Columbus in 1991, and then purchased for the college by Trustee Harold McMaster and his wife Helen.
